Spam Hasn't Changed One Bit For New Law

from the well-that-helped dept

I mentioned yesterday that I hadn't seen the slightest change in the amount of spam I received since January 1, when the new "CAN SPAM" law went into effect. It appears I'm not the only one. The various spam stoppers all claim that they haven't seen one bit of difference in the spam they're blocking. It certainly hasn't gone down, and they certainly aren't providing real information on how to opt-out. The only thing I've noticed (and this could be a coincidence) is that fewer spam messages have been getting through my filter the last few days. Otherwise, the CAN SPAM law appears to have done absolutely nothing to change the way spammers operate.
